Nice birdie

Interesting that Haast’s Eagle should have “a truncated wingspan of around three metres, for flying under the forest canopy” and yet “weighed between 10kg and 14kg – between 30% and 40% heavier than the largest living bird of prey [...] approaching the upper weight limit for powered flight” and on top of this “the New Zealand bird was in fact [genetically] related to one of the world’s smallest eagles – the little eagle from Australia and New Guinea’.

We are the Spanish Evolution! Our three main weapons are fear, surprise and ruthless efficiency! No, wait, our four...
